Artisan weaver using British wool to create beautiful products inspired by the landscapes of northern Britain.
I am passionate about weaving and British wool. Having learned to weave about 20 years ago I have, over the years, turned my hobby into a small business. I am now based in Sedbergh, at the western edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales from where I draw inspiration for the colours and designs of my products.
I create and sell a wide range of woollen goods, all of them designed by me and woven from wool which I source predominantly from farms in the Yorkshire Dales. I work with scourers, spinners, weavers, dyers and cloth finishers at mills in northern England and Scotland to produce my yarn and my designs. The whole process, from collecting and sorting the fleece to the final product, takes an entire year and is carried out exclusively within the British Isles. I produce limited edition collections of wool throws, scarves and socks and yarn for knitting and weaving, favouring simple classic designs and soft subtle colourways.
Handwoven by Laura
In addition to my British wool products which are produced in small exclusive batches, I also weave by hand. I take commissions as well as weaving 'on spec' pieces, favouring fine wools and silks for their superior handle, lambswool for its comforting warmth and other natural materials such as linen. I enjoy mixing and matching yarns to create highly textured pieces and I love to play with colour. I often think of weaving as painting with yarn and have been known to make things up as I go along instead of sticking to the rigid written rules of weaving. Rules, after all, are made to be broken!
